How do I write an if code block to execute some commands when I subscribe to the topic: microscope/light_sheet_microscope/UI and which has a message which is a device type published to it. I want to execute some code to check if the device has a python file in the currently directory because each device also relates to a python file. If the file exists then import the file into the python program else print an error message. If I need to use on_subscribe callback then tell and show me how the code is to be written and if another method then also tell me and show me how to write the code. I really appreciate all the help you can give me because this is really important for me and I am currently really struggling with MQTT because I need help with writing MQTT code because I am working on MQTT at work.
